The next stop is The Meffan Museum in Forfar, where a number of local pictish carved stones are on display. After lunch, you will be taken to St Vigeans, where a large number of stones have been discovered, and given access to the visitor centre there. You will return to Pictavia by 3.30pm when you will have a chance to look around the interactive displays there. Dr Sheila Hainey of the Pictish Arts Society will be on hand all day to guide you, and give you plenty of information about the sites you visit.
